FULTON MARKET — The West Loop Art Fest is back this weekend, featuring work from local and national artists.

The free event runs 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, along Fulton Market Street between Peoria and Aberdeen. 

The West Loop Community Organization and StarEvents are hosting.

“This year’s fest is better than ever,” said Carla Agostinelli, executive director of the West Loop Community Organization. “Many of the country’s most talented artists, many of whom are from the Chicago area, will be joining us, exhibiting work in every medium imaginable. This show has something for everyone.”

Artists include Emily Lavalier, Daniel Johnson, Aaron Uhrhammer, Candace Marsella, Darlene Hofstra, Andre Sechin and Derek Christensen. Members from Paint City and Your Passion First, who helped with a new mural by Jas Peterson on the corner of Racine Avenue and Fulton Market streets, also will attend.

A variety of pieces will be on display for purchase.
